Full House, Powerful Talks – LIVE from the Renegade Pastors Conference


I had the privilege of connecting with incredible group of Renegade Pastors this week.

Here in Orlando, I’ve been honored to spend three days leading the Renegade Pastors Conference, with over 250 pastors from every area of the country and even outside the US. And what have we been focusing on?

Ways to abandon average in life and ministry — from facing your fear of criticism head-on to taking time to replenish your own soul.

Just some of the content shared in 3 packed days of training and fellowship:

– I delivered new leadership talks on two of the toughest issues facing pastors today — how to increase your influence, and how to handle criticism.

– Replenish author Lance Witt led a powerful mini-retreat focused on a pastor’s own soul care and reminded us that self care is not selfish!

We are blessed to have a full conference – I hope you can make it to the next one as a Renegade Pastor (see PS for details on how to join and see what it means to abandon average! ).
